I havent seen Jim McIntyre in over 20 years - last time I did he was chewing
on tooth picks cause he just quit smoking -- at that time he lived
in Staten Island -- I do believe he is an attorney and I have a friend that
does keep in touch with him ocasionally - I understand he no longer plays the
fiddle but would be interesting to see what he says about McGrath's tunes..
As far as Joe Mills goes -- I only know what I have been told, like everbody
else but I would suspect that Paddy kelly wouldnt be too far away from the pen
because Joe had no knowledge of written music.. doesnt mean he didnt make up
the tune.. -- who cares? - its a great tune...
